We've made amazing progress with our rescue dog, Huckleberry. Lou's approach to training focuses on making a profound connection with our dog. At the end of every session, we were armed with the skills, tools and pointed feedback directly relating to the needs of our situation and unique relationship with our pet. His method is about instilling obedience, but coming from the position of love and respect between human and pet. As far as care goes, our dog is our child in a sense. I wouldn't trust anyone else but Good Citizen with our fur baby. They bleed love and compassion for animals in everything they do. On a side note, I've learned that they donate significant time and energy to various rescue projects and animal companion initiatives, and I would encourage everyone to get behind and support what they stand for.

Our two dogs stayed with Lou at Good CitiZEN over the week of Thanksgiving while we were out of town. They were treated like VIP's!! Lou takes care of every dog like it's his own. We will always board our dogs with him Thank you so much Lou!!

Good CitiZEN is THE BEST.Lou takes such great care of these dogs and is so knowledgeable. We went through puppy k and puppy 2 with our dog Sheba and  she is such a good dog now, we owe it all to do with Lou! She also goes to daycare or "school" as we call it a couple times a week and She Loves It! We love that we can trust sending her somewhere each day knowing nothing bad would ever happen to her and she can hang out with her best doggy friends!

“We took the Advanced Meet and Greet class with our dog Tug and the results were amazing! Tug is very fearful with people. Lou and Robbie had a way with getting and keeping his attention so that Tug (and my husband and I) could learn these new skills that have changed our lives forever.”

“Two weeks ago, I bought my 15-week-old shy and unruly GSD puppy in for help! Lou and Robbie were amazing! My puppy warmed up to them immediately! He spent time being socialized with the other puppies at the doggie daycare and has learned to sit, down, and “go into your crate” in a very short time. His good progress has been awesome! Thank you so very much Lou and Robbie for the time you spent working with Hunter!

“I am so happy we brought our dog to work with Lou and Robbie at Good Citizen Dog! My 5-month-old black lab puppy Apollo is a handful and it has been difficult getting him to focus and listen — but these guys had him sitting and focused right away! They were so patient and explained what they were doing every step of the way. I’ve been able to use their techniques at home and Apollo’s improvement has been amazing. Thank you so much Lou and Robbie!

"Lou and Robbie are a wonderful team. Their mellow and gentle spirit truly makes a special kind of connection with dogs. They worked with my dog Riley who is a traumatized rescue, they were really patient to make the connection with him which was greatly appreciated. I would recommend them to everyone!"

I'm a groomer for Aussie Pet Mobile and refer all of my clients that ask about training, because I've seen the wonders done and patience demonstrated with shelter dogs from Boise Bully Breed Rescue.
